Your own customized cloud solution.
When it comes to resolving today’s business challenges, there’s no “one size fits all” solution. It’s the same when determining the right cloud technology for your business. That technology should be one that addresses your organization’s specific needs. But finding that tailored solution isn’t always easy.
Business in the cloud can involve tradeoffs between speed, security, availability, functionality, latency, and cost that most organizations struggle to fully embrace. That’s why organizations are increasingly turning to hybrid cloud solutions to solve these challenges head-on.
Why use Hybrid Cloud Hosting?
Although it may seem as if businesses are moving completely to the cloud, that may not be the perfect solution for your business—at least, not right now. Perhaps you want to maintain your on-premise infrastructure for security, regulatory or financial reasons. At the same time, you need the speed and flexibility that comes from cloud technology. Hybrid cloud hosting provides the best of both worlds and, as a bonus, sets the stage for an eventual complete transition to the cloud in the future.
Finding the Right Hybrid Cloud Hosting Provider
Hybrid clouds work by coupling on-premise machines, applications, and data to compatible machines, storage, and database services in a cloud. To work effectively, these two infrastructures must maintain high-speed communication and synchronization.
Engineering, architecting and deploying a hybrid cloud solution is more complex than using software as a service (SaaS) or infrastructure as a service (IaaS). That’s why the expertise and personalized approach of a hybrid cloud hosting partner is essential to ensure the process goes smoothly every step of the way.
Public Cloud Implementation and Support
Maybe you’re one of the million+ businesses already using the public cloud—or at least considering it. Although public clouds like AWS, Azure and others offer comprehensive cloud computing solutions, many organizations want assurance that they’ll have implementation help and technical support before they’re ready to commit.
Symmetry provides that assurance with ongoing architecture, security and 24/7 operations support for public cloud deployments. By blending technology and automation with the expertise of certified engineers and architects, Symmetry gives you security to take advantage of a public cloud, while ensuring you’ll have the support you need, whenever you need it.
Private Cloud Implementation and Support
The public cloud isn’t always the best solution for businesses—or for certain mission-critical operations within a business. Data platforms like SAP HANA require high memory and processing rates, which might get slowed down in a public cloud setting. A private cloud can add additional layers of security and compliance, but when a business must handle implementation, management and maintenance of the private cloud, it can be complex and a strain on internal resources.
Through Symmetry’s private cloud, we take care of all the heavy lifting. We’ll become an extension of your team and host your mission-critical systems on dedicated Symmetry-owned equipment. To top it off we’ll handle all the security and maintenance – ensuring your private cloud solution is exactly what you need.
